The monarch died on Thursday.

The late Attah, until his death was the Chairman of the Kogi State Council of Traditional Rulers and one of the key pillars of the state.

The Wazirin Adamawa said that the late Attah worked very hard as a key mobiliser of the people for community and development projects which has changed the profile and appearance of the state.

Atiku noted further that the late royal father was a nationalist, who believed in one Nigeria and manifested this in his wise counsel at the state and federal levels.
